Bewitching actress Jane Wilkinson wants a divorce, but her husband, Lord Edgware, refuses. She implores Hercule Poirot to use his famed tact and logic to make her case. Laughing, she tells Poirot if he fails she may have to bump off her husband herself. But it is no laughing matter when Lord Edgware is murdered, a well-placed knife wound at the base of his neck. It will take the precise Poirot to sort out the lies from the alibis.

From the Back Cover:

When Lord Edgware is found murdered the police are baffled. His estranged actress wife was seen visiting him just before his death and Hercule Poirot himself heard her brag of her plan to “get rid” of him.

But how could she have stabbed Lord Edgware in his library at exactly the same time she was seen dining with friends? It’s a case that almost proves to be too much for the great Poirot.
